I’ve been searching for a charity to get behind since I started Girl With Curves over four years ago, and I’m super excited to share one that means a lot to me, personally.
In addition to my mission of spreading confidence and body positivity through fashion, I’m very passionate about the educational system. I was the first person in my extended family to attend college and I’ve always prided myself in learning and excelling in the classroom as far back as I can remember.
As a first time mom, I find myself wondering about my son’s education a lot: should we move to be in a better school district? Should he go to private school? There are so many unanswered questions my husband and I have. Luckily, we have a few years before having to make those decisions, but for the time being, it’s important to me that children currently in school are afforded the programs that help them excel in other subjects and in life as a whole, bringing out their extracurricular passions, and in some cases, preventing them from falling victim to violence, gangs and drugs.
Schoola is a service that sells gently loved name-brand clothing at 70% off retail price and gives 40% back to schools! They currently have 10,000 schools on their charity roster and continue to add more daily. As a blogger that’s passionate about education and secondhand shopping, I couldn’t be prouder to get behind a charity that not only benefits the education system, but also helps recycle clothing.
While Schoola originally launched its service providing clothing for children, they’ve recently expanded to include a women’s category! Now, not only can you get involved by donating items from your child’s closet and purchase gently used items to replace those donated, but you can now donate and purchase clothing, shoes and handbags for yourself as well!
With the launch of the women’s category this month, Schoola has a goal of raising $100,000 for schools. To participate, click here to shop the site and receive $15 off your first order, with 40% of proceeds going to schools!
If you’d like to donate items from yours and/or your child’s closet, you can request a donation bag here. Shipping to and from your home is completely free.
